Breton - Cornish Youth & Breton Cornish Language Exchange

News from Kernow Matters To Us:

Between the 14th and 23rd of July 2016, twelve young Breton speakers aged from 13 to 16 years old, visited Cornwall and stayed with a group of twelve Cornish young people at Tehidy Park.

During this summer camp, they took part in many activities and visits, and shared their common heritage and roots. They spoke Brezhoneg, Kernewek, English, and also a bit of French. The Bretons are very motivated to welcome the Cornish for the return trip in Finistere in 2017.

This visit was being held as part of the KELT project, the aim of which was to organise a youth exchange to promote the Breton and Cornish languages.

The project was funded under the ERASMUS+ programme and led by UBAPAR and Kowethas and Yeth Kernewek.

It was developed in the frame of the Finistere-Cornwall cooperation, a cooperation partnership between Finistere and Cornwall councils which has run since 1989 and strengthened in 2007.

Facilitating and supporting projects in the field of regional languages are one of its priorities for 2016-2017.
